Will Summicron blow away the 58 Noct-Nikkor?

Been enjoying shooting with my Fuji X-Pro1 for about two months. Shutter lag with autofocus lenses is about my only major complaint with the camera. My D3 is now a safe queen. Been collecting L39 and F-mount adapters for my Fuji. Now the issue becomes should I get the 50mm Summicron? Will it just blow away the 58mm F1.2 Noct-Nikkor at comparable f-stops?

Anyone compare the two?

Also, I have another motif. Like to submit photos to LFI at some point in my life and feel the need for a Leica, but already have a 50 Summitar I've adapted for the Fuji as well... Probably will be most interested in Type 4 or Type 5 Summicron as the Collapsable through Dual Range Summicron 50s maybe too similar to my Summitar.

Any thoughts?
